Good Day. I dropped my Nikon Coolpix L16 camera onto a table. Since then when i switch the device on the lens goes out about a quarter and the goes back in and i get a lens error message. I noticed that when the lens goes out it bends to the right(looking from the top) and gets stuck by something. When i pull the lens a little to the left while switching it on everything works fine. A very small metal part came out of the camera. Any ideas? is it repairable?

Hi, I have a Canon T2i Rebel. When i put the camera in "M" (totally manual), the image doesnt appear in the LCD screen. Everything else works fine in the monitor, but it is as if the lens where covered with the cap. But it´s not, and acutally all the other modes work fine. Only in the manual mode the image doesnt show, and the pictures also appear completely black. The menu shows sometimes something as if the exposure were less than -2, but even though i change the values for everything hig

Frozen Lens I just dropped poor camera on to the carpet from about a foot! Everything seems to work except the shooting mode, the lens wont extend from the actual camera. The slider still goes across fully and the battery is in fine. I can go into quick view mode and still change settings etc. Is this likely to be expensive to fix?

I have a Kodak Easyshare model dx5430 digital camera (5mp). It has worked like a champ for years. Last night I was at an event when the image display went dark at picture 31. All preceding photos were able to be reviewed. The camera flash works fine. The camera displays all the other characteristics of a working unit. It turns on and off; the flash works, the menu is accessible - everything. It just doesn't register any photos. Even in close-up mode, there is nothing. It's as if the lens cap is

Hi, I have just bought the Fuji JX530. When I take a picture I get a split second clicking sound coming from the lens before the flash goes and the picture is taken. The picture is fine and the mechanism moves smoothly when turned on/off and zoomed in/out. Is this just the normal operating sound of the lens or something else ??
When you press the button, the camera performs many functions in a split second such as set the focus, set the aperture and shutter speed, calculate the flash power, etc. It will make sounds and if the pictures are fine, then all is well. ... Digital Cameras

Everything physically appears fine, and it turns on, the lens comes out, and I can view photos on the camera, but I cannot shoot a picture.

I turned on my cam to see the camera making everything look distorted on the screen and distorted when I actually take a picture. Every other function works fine (like the menu screens etc.) so it's not a screen problem so it might be a lens problem or something. Can somebody please tell me what's wrong?

Images I seem to get yellowish images and images that are really dark even when I put the flash on. The flash seems weak, almost defected. But then in the next series of shots it will work and the picture will come out just fine. All of this in the same setting with the same subject and everything else a constant too. Help please, it seems like I must be doing something wrong either that or my camera is broken. P.S. it is brand new Amber
No that isn't it but I am not offended. The flash in fact looks like it goes off but at 10% of the full strength. I had other people try to take a picture to see if the same thing happened to them and it did and I saw them, they did not have their ha ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

Lens error. lens comes out than back in turns off than on and goes back in and out than says lens error. this camera is only about 8 months old. i have a feeling if it were to get repaired some else will go wrong. doesn't seem like a reliable product very disappointed in nikon and most likely never will buy their products again.

When I turn on my Panasonic DMC-FX55 the lens comes out fine and the screen displays for 2 seconds then goes blank except for the message 'Turn off then on again' - which doesn't work. The only way to get the lens to retract is to select 'Playback' - tun off then on . The playback mode works fine and after 10 econds the lens returns to closed position. Is their a combination of buttons that reset the camera??

My camera is in great condition and I'd hate to spend the money to get it fixed. It seems like everything else is working except for the lens...which is a big one! It never reads "ERROR" its just that the lens will not focus. It makes a noise when it is turned on like it is trying to focus. Even when I slightly hold the shutter button it makes a strange noise trying to focus but cannot. Any ideas of what I could do?

The display screen shows images very distorted like it is too bright and the image "runs" it's really strange. Almost like when you look at a heart beat monitor and it "spikes". I knocked the camera off my desk while trying to charge it, and I am afraid I might have messed up the lens or something. The image is clear when looking at the settings, but the display is very distorted.
